Wyatt Earp v2 #4 - Russ Manning art


Wyatt Earp v2 #4, 1959 - A fight ensues when a giant stranger arrives in Dodge City. Like previous issues, Russ Manning makes great effort portray Earp similarly to actor Hugh O' Brien. His superb figure drawings permeate the story. His second tale, about the dangers faced by newly arrived city prosecutor, focuses instead on various western settings. The most gripping scene occurs on page 6 panel 3, as an assassin takes aim from a distance. This is number 4 of 13 Wyatt Earp issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Wyatt Earp issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
